THE CARAGA ADVENTURES 3: Tinuy-an Falls


 

Dubbed as the “Niagara Falls of the South”, Tinuy-an Falls is a three-layered falls situated at Sote, Brgy. Burboanan, Bislig City, Surigao del Sur.

We were warned regarding the bridge that collapsed at Brgy. Burboanan. 
Two days before we arrived, a truck with illegal logs passed the bridge and it’s way beyond the capacity. The driver took the risk one night to transport the logs. Tsk! Now they (who ever owned that truck) must pay! They should repair the bridge! Hmpf! 

Now the people from the Baranagy has to take the makeshift raft. On one hand, this shows how Mindanaoans creatively face the problem at hand. The resiliency of communities.  Good thing, the municipal LGU also provided free ride.

Some interesting trivia about Tinuy-an falls:
·   It has a 3 tiered falls with a total height of 55 meters and a bathing width area of 95 meters
·   It has 3 islets at the swimming ground, cool atmosphere with presence of dipterocarp trees, ferns, orchids, and vine along bank of river.
·   multi layered riverbed of stones skillfully crafted by nature.
·   And formation of rainbow rays from 9 am to 11 am  (Sadly, we're not able to see the rainbow. :/) 


Since it’s a weekday, we had the falls for ourselves. 


Take the stairs and enjoy the rock formations of the falls at the upper cascades. It didn't rain the other night, so the rocks are very visible.
Because I am a yogi wannabe! ^_^
Time to meditate! 
There were no stocks of fish at the resto because of the collapsed bridge so we decided to eat our baon and leave the area by 1:00PM. 

PS. Just an observation, the municipal mayor’s face is at the huge tarpaulin. The Guests of the falls with the mayor’s smiling face everywhere! Oh wow! What a promotion. Haha! ( I no longer took a pic of that. He’s already over-exposed.hehe ).
